IDP Rankings Week 12: Top defensive fantasy football players to start

If you're in an IDP fantasy football league, you've come to the right place. Here are the top 100 IDP rankings for Week 12.

With two of the top NFL offenses on bye this week, there is a good chance for IDPs to make it count. With the fantasy football playoffs less than a month away, have you made the necessary moves to help you get into the dance? If not, then my Week 12 IDP rankings are here to help you with free agents, waiver wire, and any start or sit queries.

These Week 12 IDP rankings are just a guide. Most IDP leagues are scored very differently, and there is not a set standard. Therefore, I have put the position rank of each player next to their ranking and who they are playing, so you can adjust these rankings accordingly. For example, if sacks are worth a lot more (say, 6 points), you might want to move the DEs up the board. If tackles are scored lower than 1.5 points for a solo tackle and 0.75 for an assisted tackle, then move LBs down the board.
